”Origo” documents the continued collaboration between Plunge and piano great Bobo Stenson, it is Plunge’s fourth album and their second together with Stenson. The rewarding collaboration between the trio and Stenson began in the fall of 2002, and has so far resulted in numerous tours of Sweden, several national and European radio broadcasts and a CD, “Plunge with Bobo Stenson”, which was released on Kopasetic Productions in 2005.
The music on “Origo” is improvised and based on intense listening, spontaneous composition and a far reaching sense of form, and it is clear how the quartet’s music has evolved over the years – the pieces are longer, more elaborate and more minimalistic. The new record features a wide spectrum of sounds, textures and moods – from intense and suggestive grooves to beautiful ballads and sparse and sensitive interplay, and is a good example of contemporary, Scandinavian jazz – music that’s an extension of the strong Nordic tradition of creative, personal and challenging jazz, a tradition that Bobo Stenson has been a big and important part of since the early 60’s.
